Group Intelligence is an activity designed to help students understand molecular behavior, specifically how molecules self-assemble, how diversity is required for that self-assembly, and how that self-assembly leads to remarkable accomplishments in nature. 

The Experience

Throughout the 20-minute activity, students will walk, run, form patterns and solve spatial problems together, as they follow the instructions on the audio file. For example, students are asked to line up in a particular order of boy/girl, and then asked to match their line with another oppositely organized line. The recognition moment that happens between the two lines of students is akin to the recognition that happens between base pairs in DNA and RNA.

The Science

Molecules, upon self assembling through recognition, behave very similarly and are able to accomplish a variety of tasks—chemical reactions within the human body, such as digestion and metabolism, are perfect examples.
